When a box from Oasap arrived on my doorstep, I unwrapped the packages and set them on my bed, intending to pack them for my weekend at home. However, when I turned back to try and figure out what outfits to create around them, I realized they'd already done that for me. These pieces work great together! Not to mention this bright green skirt is perfect for St. Patty's Day! All it needed was a pair of tights, a hat, and some cut out boots. Oh, and of course, some retro glamor of red lips and extreme cat eye sunnies.
What is it about copying a retro style that makes you feel fabulous? Driving around in my car, the windows down (eee, spring is here!), I couldn't help but think I was the classiest thing on the road (excluding my car of course...sigh). This lipstick I'm wearing is my MAC splurge, and I'm so glad I chose Russian Red as my color! It is the perfect red. Everything else I've tried before doesn't come close to it's pigmentation. While I've felt like all other red shades I've tried made me look like a clown, there's something about this one that's different. Instead, I feel classic and vibrant. Guess you get what you pay for, eh?
Working at the coffee shop is still kind of rough since my experience is continually being broken up by school and I only get to be there on weekends. At least I have awesome coworkers that help me out! I just hate that I still feel pretty lost. So while that's going on, I'm grateful to at least get a night or two over at Golden Corral to waitress. The tips really are a great way to earn extra money - this way I can still pay for rent while saving money on the side. The only thing is that all this work combined with school is wearing me out. Last Friday, Zombie Linda was doing her best to keep up with all her tables and still maintain a cheery attitude.
I had a large group come in and sit at my section right when I was scrambling to keep up with the rest of my tables. After introducing myself and clearing their plates a couple times, one of the guys noted how exhausted I looked. I mentioned my upcoming midterms, and when they were getting ready to leave, he whipped out his wallet and handed me a card that was a free pass to some local hot springs. Then he handed me another one so I could take a friend! The thought of getting to soak in the warm pools made me half giddy!
It really was a touching gesture, and I marvel at the kindness strangers can show. It stands out so much today, and the timing of it was such a blessing. God sends us little gifts when we least expect it sometimes!
As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace
